The teaching method used in our Italian language courses is based on the stimulation to learn through direct communication between the teacher and the student, keeping into account the student's age, basic education and goals.
The Italian language is taught by using traditional and authentic educational materials and activities, such as games, role playing, debates and other teaching instruments, such as songs and videos.
Our language courses are aimed to the gradual achievement of the linguistic abilities of comprehension, speaking, reading and writing, also through study of the historical and artistic aspects, through visits to the monuments of the town together with teachers.
